Background

EX-Q whose real name is Enock Munhenga is a father of two children named Trey and Tiara and was once married to Irene Office.

Career

EX-Q rose to stardom when he released his single, 'Musalala' which was also known as 'Salad' during the turn of the new millennium. From 'Musalala' EX-Q became one of the household names during the era when Urban Grooves as a genre was gaining popularity in the country. From 'Musalala', he went on to release, 'Pandakakuona' together with Shame and Nathan.[1] Coincidentally, when Professor Jonathan Moyo was appointed to be the Minister of Information in 2000, he introduced a policy of promoting local music and EX-Q amongst other Zimbabwean musicians who were given precedence on radio and television stations in the country.

In 2005, EX-Q released his first album, Exquisite which had tracks such as 'Mazirudo', 'Ndichakutevera' amongst others.[1] EX-Q claims that he relocated overseas to work on his second album, "Love is my Religion". He collaborated with various artists and the most popular song from this album was "Pane Rudo" which featured Oliver Mtukudzi.

On 26 January, EX-Q hinted that he was working on his fifth album which was supposed to be released by the end of February 2015.[2] In spite of this, two singles from the album were released in January 2015 entitled, The Way and Pore Pore.

Controversy

EX-Q ended his six-year-old marriage with his manager-cum-wife, Irene Office in 2014. Rumours had it that EX-Q had dumped his wife opting to stay with his longtime girlfriend who was reported to be a sugar mummy, residing in Mount Pleasant.[3] After his marriage had tumbled down, it was allegedly reported that EX-Q went for a romantic holiday with his sugar mummy in Nyanga.[3] EX-Q dispelled this arguing that Nyanga was his rural home, hence he had gone to visit his relatives. EX-Q confirmed that he parted ways with his wife but he denied that he had dumped her to be with someone. He stated that one of the reasons for divorcing his wife was that she somehow acted as a stumbling block to his musical career.[3]
